away from him. joining me now rolling stone national affairs correspondent tim dickinson and doug thornel democratic strategist, knickerbocker former spokesman for the democratic campaign committee and traveling press secretary for howard dean's 2004 presidential campaign. thank you both for joining us. it was not so much fun watching last night and today, i kind of had the sense that we've read at different points in our lives about the seven stages of grief. i kind of saw the democratic party working through the stages today. tim, let me ask you are they now beginning to deal with reality and figure out how to put these things back together? >> you know, i actually went back and rewatched the debate today. it was sort of less bad than i think people honestly -- maybe you think i'm in denial but i think this actually was not a tragic debate for the president. i thought he came across as sleepy and a step too slow but other than that, you know, he was fine under substance. he didn't have any notable gaffes. we're not t
now, doug schoen and pat caddell, also a fox news contributor and former pollster for jimmy carter. i want to start with these ohio numbers because, because there was also a poll out that said it was tied at 47, and ppp, a democratic-leaning firm, released a poll showing obama up just one point in ohio. do you believe that it's a tied race in ohio, doug? >> i do. i think the fox news poll last week had it three, and i think pat and i both believe that the momentum in the race, the clear momentum is moving to mitt romney, and ohio which is probably both a bellwether and the key to the election, has been moving slowly, but it's moved about five or six points in the last week or so, and bottom line that makes this race dead even with all the momentum in governor romney's direction. megyn: the ppp poll that showed the president up by just one in ohio apparently had a sampling, a democrat sampling advantage of 8%, and earlier it was a democratic advantage of four. so the president is showing, you know, that he's doing worse even with more democrats in the sample in the tate of ohio, pat. w
of transplants like doug who moved here from new york. >> you're asking about the analogy with the barbecue, whether it's vinegar based or the tomato based, the thing i notice here is people are steeped in the way they've always done it. very -- very traditional. zbr but tradition can be upended. >> you're 70 -- >> 74. >> yes. >> you're black. you saw the first black president elected. yet you're sitting here saying i'm not sure. >> i'm not sure. but head west to lexington. the politics in this part of the state is mostly red. just like the sauce. >> they know the best politics. this is where to find it here in lexington, north carolina. it's going to make it harder to do what --? >> to survive. last g around president obama won north carolina by 14,000 votes. >> who are you voting for? >> obama. >> who did you vote for before? >> obama. >> why are you voting for him again? >> because he's doing a good job. >> i think obama needs needs to put his man pants on. >> presidential politics like barbecue, split down the middle. it will likely go late into the evening, like a midnight buffet. >> k
. take a look at what they mean by that. up next, presidential historian doug brinkley of how disasters affected elections and republican congressman steve king says he wants to avoid a repeat of hurricane katrina. he says relief money was spent on bags and massage parlors. one of the things we thought you should know. but first, today nate silver of "the new york times" forecasted president obama had 77% chance of winning re-election and now 299 votes and governor romney 239. >>> welcome back. president obama was supposed to be in ohio today before canceling the visit due to hurricane sandy and the damage caused. despite being off the trail, the latest poll of ohio voters gives the president a five-point edge and seems to show growing optimism about the economy of white working class voters and could be the reason seeing him hold on to the lead and, quote, if you look at the body language of the campaign hard not to conclude they believe they're behind. and if they believe ohio is a be all end all then they're behind. let's bring in editor mark murray. before we talk about the poll, i
, former spokesman for the democratic congressional campaign committee doug foreign nell and from the now romney superpack. so we could really walk out on the house debate. ann i want to put up our top ten markets, these are the most saturated ad markets for the eighth through the 14th. norfolk, cleveland, florida, virginia plus ro colorado. flohva and then colorado, iowa, wisconsin those are the six. >> this is the map, this is the place that we all want to visit and the people there probably want to flee by now. we have known this map from the outset and the map hasn't changed. that's one of the interesting things. despite all the ups and downs, we are in this same map. >> that is an interesting point that, is that a yellow flag for romney? he's doing well, everything's popped for him. but you know the map hasn't changed. >> but the map has gotten better. before the debate, we saw it tight. si since the debate, he's not within the margin of error, he's going to be up. i think going into the 12re67, he's exactly where he needs to be. >> you're not concerned that the maps never really exp
debating, jobs ratings, and the washington post editor, doug hattaway, and sarah taylor, former senior aide to president george w. bush. so welcome, i'll start with you, anne, let's all take a look at what happened earlier. >> by the time the debate was over, mitt romney seemed a completely moderate centrist figure, who showed up as mitt romney the governor, not as mitt romney, the candidate. >> except everything he mentioned wasn't true. so does that start to take its toll over the next few months? >> i just think that that is unjust, to say that -- >> when you say my plan covers pre-existing con i think they will call whatever mitt romney said in the debate, untruthful. no matter how the debate had gone. it just so happens they take extreme issue with certain things, the fact-checkers took issue with, as well, it is a lot to hang their hats on, but away they have to go on at this point. >> are they saying that mitt romney and paul ryan are ignoring the facts? has it gotten any traction? >> it is picking up a story line going on in the campaign. and with mitt romney, people just do not tru
pollster for president carter, pat caddell, and former pollster for bill clinton, doug schoen. is romney the frontrunner? >>doug: it is moving that way. he has the momentum but we need tuesday night and a good debate performance for that to be confirmed. right now the race is too close to call. >>gregg: pat, the reuters poll came up obama leading romney 59 to 39 among early voters. >> this is an online poll. it is a small number of people but it is being hyped today by a lot news organization who have stopped during -- doing their state polls now that obama is not doing so well. clearly the obama campaign is better organized and we do not know what it means in florida and north carolina, where we know the numbers on absentee ballots and republicans have more than democrats in that situation. >>gregg: now the real clear politics poll average, governor romney is ahead by roughly three points. boy, the trend line was in the opposite direction not long ago. >> what has happened, the first presidential debate is what caused a bigger explosion than that guy breaking the sound barrier. that is
outcome might be. please, give a commonwealth club welcome to joan walsh. [applause] >> thank you, doug, thinks everybody. i told my best friend that's here tonight that i was nervous about this. i've been doing all sorts of things and not getting nervous, and i told trevor -- i tweet a lot -- and someone reminded me that yesterday was the 80th anniversary of fdr most important speech at that point in his life in 1932. he was running for the presidency and he came out and sent a big defining difference between him and herbert hoover was that he was really going to use dhaka government to help people and get us out of the great depression. so, no pressure there. [laughter] i was nervous before, but then hearing that, whatever. that's a piece of cake. >> i get a lot of laughter. every time the title was mentioned, people chuckled, and chris matthews said today and he chuckled and said that is just a funny title even though he said it like nine times it's funny every time. that's okay. and i realized that there are three actual meanings to the title, and i am only getting to talk about one
. megyn: this is totally horrifying. way to bring the room down. we were feeling so great after doug's visit. reporter: i can't wait for the book, by the way. also, so dapper and good-looking. megyn: i'm a little biased on that. i think so. coming up, philadelphia police officers fired after he caught on camera sucker punching a woman in the face. leading her away in handcuffs. now, his union is fighting his dismissal. that is on the docket in today's "kelly's court." and the deadly outbreak of a rare form of meningitis is growing. we will have the latest. and questions about helpful journalists are costing to offer president obama debate advice. we have our next guest coming up live i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment... even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting... low-wage labor to its investors. mitt r
's where malarkey came in. doug mcelway is live in washington. we have our own fact checkers. i would never use that word on any of your reports. >> so i can state for the record i didn't do the fact checking, that would be malarkey. it was our brain room that did the fact checking from last night. last night's debate focused heavily on entitlements prompting paul ryan to attack obamacare for costing harm to seniors who use medicare advantage. >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the medicare advantage coverage they have, that is a $3,200 medicare cut. >> true or you false? it is true. they wrote, quote, we estimate in 2017 when the medicare advantage provisions will be fully phased in enrollment in medicare advantage plans will be lower by about 50% from it's projected level of 14.8 million under the prior law to 7.4 million under the new law. all right. moving along now. another statement to fact check from paul ryan regarding this often repeated romney campaign contention that obamacare takes $716 billion away from medicare. listen up. >> obama care takes $716 billion from medica
government romney spent a lot of time on the offensive. doug luzader takes a closer look. >> reporter: they sat down at the table last night with the same ultimate goal in mind, and that is, of course, winning come november 6th. they have two different strategies to get there. >> this debate begins as they do, with a handshake. as they headed to their seats, they had different objectives. romney, to preserve his momentum, the president to get some back. when romney questioned cuts to the navy, a critical issue in the battleground state of virginia, the president delivered what his supporters think was the line of the night. >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than in 1916. governor, we have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changeed. >> reporter: we the split screen may have told the story, with the president not stepping down and this time, it was morally a glare. while the focus was on foreign policy with questions like russia, israel and libya, romney made a pivot to the weak economy. >> amermust lead and for that to hap
at a conference in 2010. doug mckelway is following it arrive in washington. doug? >> gregg, one of the features of that conference in orlando last year was the presentation of a parody film, a takeoff on the classic "patton." it was designed to motivate va employees. here's a snippet of the film. >> one of the worse mistakes you can make in carrying out your mission is getting the idea in your head that stability is a virtue. stability is not a virtue, it's a trap. it means you're holding your own, you're standing still. >> reporter: the film goes on with interviews of va employees and beneficiaries. it cost $52,000 to produce that little 15-minute film. it was shown only twice. yet that price tag is only a fraction of the cost of the overall conference. the va billed taxpayers over $5 million for the conference, that's more than five times what that notorious xsa conference -- gsa conference in vegas cost. what's more, just as with the gsa, the va inspect general's report found investigators were lousy at keeping track of their expenses. quote: >> reporter: a day before this damaging ig report
years, so it's really an audition for mitt romney in front of 50 million american people. >> doug, you have watched many of these. you have analyzed many of these rsh you are calling this one historical. a historical event. why? >> because we're in this weeshd cycle here where barack obama is a president with over 8% unemployment. usually that means you lose, but mitt romney has run a lackluster campaign, particularly in august and september. you are starting to see in the swing states barack obama pulling ahead in virtually all of the polls, and if he comes and gets any more momentum, he has the momentum right now, obama, and he doesn't get stopped at all, then it could be a break-out for the president. on the other hand, mitt romney tonight is such an underdog, people don't think he is that fantastic of debater. they're underestimating him. he is quite good. he comes and seeming to have parody with the president and maybe get that zinger they're rehearsing so hard, get one in that works and hits this youtube media cycle playing over and over again. romney could turn into the swing st
of that. >> doug holtz-eakin, if you were mitt romney works you make benghazi something of an issue tonight? i don't mean filibustering and going through anything but as a matter of leadership, you have economic leadership, fiscal leadership, america losing its credit rating leadership, now you have the benghazi thing. does romney do it tonight? >> i think it can come up but it can't come up as a gratuitous topic out of nowhere. the president offered the promise of a more transparent administration as one of the things he ran on. this didn't look terribly transparent. it falls on the heels of other non-transparent -- >> you're saying whatever happens tonight the issue goes on and the president's got to deal with in. >> yeah. this is a national security issue that has to be dealt with, regardless of who is president. >> now, debate coverage continues at 8:00 and goes right through till the end. keith boykin is going to be back joining the expert analysis crew after the debate, oh, my goodness, tonight's debate between president obama and mitt romney could help some decide who they're
can. megyn: joining me now, doug schoen, former advisor to president bill clinton, pat cad dale, -- pat caddel, former vice sore to president jimmy carter. both co-hosts on fox news channel, sunday at -- >> 5:30 p.m. megyn: what is really going on here? this got started with vice president joe biden's comments at the debate saying we didn't know the folks at in libya were requesting for security and it spiraled from there. what is really happening, doug? >> we have 25 days to go until the election the obama administration is trying to foist off blame and responsibility, whether it be now the state department, before it was the intelligence community. they're using what i call the sergeant schultz defense, i know nothing. that is what they're trying to do. vice president biden said we didn't know. they have spun that into the white house, not the administration. and bottom line, they're trying to get through the next three weeks plus. megyn: in the mind of the voter does it make any difference whether hillary clinton knew and barack obama didn't, or is it just the administration
americans. the bomber drove into a nato patrol. doug mcelway joins us live. it was a couple weeks ago the u.s. suspended patrols with afghan soldiers because of these insider attacks. have these joint patrols resumed now? >> reporter: they have. they resumed last thursday and the insider attacks have also resumed. not only the attack you just mentioned but also the suicide bomber attack, homicide bomber attack. the motorcycle laden with explosives drove into that marketplace. critics say this attacks reflect an obama foreign policy that refuses to acknowledge the reality on the ground. u.s. marines are tying tourniquets to their legs in hopes of surviving ied attacks before they go out on patrol. >> we are going to get after this. it reverit. it reverberates. we are willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign but we are not willing to be murdered for it. >> reporter: the death toll reached 2,000 over the weekend. martha: what is the afghan point of view as far as we can glean about these insider attacks? >> reporter: critics say the obama administration has set a date for withdrawal extra.
not think the romney camp has figured on a way to get behind that yet. host: doug in boston, massachusetts is a democrat. caller: romney seems enthusiastic about going into iran with the israelis, however is a war crime without a chapter 7 resolution. george bush was recently advised not to travel to switzerland because of the laws of jurisdiction. guest: it would be an interesting question to hear responses from. i would point out it is not always a violation of international law to invade or attack a company without a chapter 7 resolution. there is the universal right of self-defense, but i remind the caller that if one country in invades the other, while that might not be legal, the country that is fighting back is not in violation of anything. host: matthew lee, you recently wrote a piece, "why it matters to israel to tell -- why it matters -- israel." how was this playing out. guest: i think mitt romney will try to expand on the idea that he brought up in the last debate, that president obama has tried to put distance between the united states and israel. it is indisputable that there
on pocketbooks. host: doug from pennsylvania, welcome. caller: at the end of the day, in terms of moving forward, could you please tell me what i'm talking about? tell me what the pundits and politicians are saying, what they mean when they say these things? how many times did paul ryan say, "at the end of the day"? maybe you should take people literally when they say "at the end of the day." "at the end of the day i take off my clothing and go to bed.' could you buy these people a thesaurus? guest: i happened to hate that phrase. newt gingrich always says " frankly this" and "frankly that." 't point.u can poin guest: it is inside the beltway speak. you are thinking about what you're going to say. "i have this point i have to hit." guest: "let me be clear." "make no mistake." presidential poll. president obama, 50%. mitt romney, 47%. how influential is it in the media chamber? guest: the campaigns are obsessing on the polls. the import numbers of the numbers in eight or nine key states. here's my beef about the coverage. we want to know who will win. it seeps into all the coverage when one cand
doug says about the defense spending. the sequester i don't think that you were in the room for that as far as i can tell and a was an interesting story to tell and as someone could go back and just do a google's search for the number of republican leaders that stood up for the sequestered. no one thinks it should come into effect. it was never supposed to come into effect and quite frankly the vice presidential candidate congressman ryan supported this and the budget control and the cuts are so devastating that he would also agree the fiscal strength is probably important abroad as well and economic strength, and i don't know how an additional $2 trillion in spending on defense that is on paid for with of the additional assets that you are talking about that no one in the pentagon has asked for except for perhaps the four advisers that do not serve on the campaign. the amazing things to take a number and then build it, a builder can pan around it instead of designing a strategy of which you build the defense philosophy around that. >> first on iran, mr. romney actually beli
for. one, does the president show the want to, the energy that doug wilder was talking about. two does he more fec livety take on mitt romney and the centrist tone he was striking in the last debate. finally, does he do better at laying out a concrete vision for a second term. democrats want him to do all three. >> larry kudlow the debate in about a minute and a ahalf. >> i think john is right. i think the fulcrum of this debate will be about economic growth and jobs but i think the benghazi thing, with hillary saying it's my responsibility, the night before the debate, i think that puts it right into barack obama's lap. i think this is a great clinton power play, very clever on the clinton's part and now the president's going to have that ball and he better not fumble it. >> governor romney is going to be pushing this. >> he's going to go right for it. you know he's going right for it. keith is right about the economy, but people are very upset about an ambassador getting killed. >> we take you to hofstra university, a town hall with about 80 voters chosen by gallup uncommitted regist
when you have done nothing wrong. >> mayor, i'm state representative doug miller from texas. thank you for your compliments. appreciate that. we have been working hard and will continue to. that's one of the reasons i'm here today. i think another issue that you didn't address but i would like to hear your comments on is this election sls two different directions on whether we're going to allow -- i know i have several colleagues from other states, state legislators here but the direction of wh we're going to allow -- whether we're going to allow states to have their rights versus a stronger centralized federal government which hasn't worked on a number of occasions. i would like to hear your comments on state rights, federal rights and federalism. >> i think you're right. if president obama is re-elected there will be more concentration of power in washington. obamacare is a massive concentration of power in washington. all the new regulations, dodd-frank. it has to be one of the great ironies that it is named dodd-frank since it is named for the two people who probably did the most t
: good morning, doug. >> guest: >> caller: good morning. romney seems more enthusiastic about amin the hands of the israelis. it is a war crime under geneva to attack another country without united nations vote in a chapter seven resolution. faq reminds you george bush is not adverse to travel to switzerland because i the universal jurisdiction. or we just like to see this question gets asked when the united states. i thought, bye. just to be an interesting question to hear the response. i would point out that it's not always a violation of international law to avoid or attack a country with a chapter seven resolution. there is a universal way of self-defense. so i remind the caller that if one country invades another, while that may be of the call, the country that has -- that is fighting back event in violation of anything. >> host: matthew labors labored apiece. what matters israel, looking how both candidates are eager to show their loyalty and close ties with israel. how is that plain out and do expect that to be a big topic play now? >> guest: i think that romney will try to
of the second. doug pfister takes a line drive right off the head. it bounces into the outfield with a hit. amazing he pfister would stay in the game. he said after the game that he's fine. >> of course, he was tasting purple the rest of the night, but still, the guy has a hard head. >> scoreless in the sixth. giants' starter madison ba baumgartner gets omar infante. gregor blanco lays down the beautiful bunt just inside the foul line to load the bases. giants would eventually score in the inning. that's all they'd need. they'd win game two by a final of 2-0 and go up 2-0. the series moves to detroit tomorrow for game three. >> finally, tim tebow in the news again. he's added yet another award to his trophy case, but this one, not quite as good as the heisman. in a recent "sports illustrated" survey of players, tim was overwhelmingly chosen as the most overrated player in the league. they gave him the dubious distinction of being the most overrated. he's yet to score a touchdown as a role player with the jets this season, but they're not giving him a chance so you can't knock him for that.
senator ben nelson is not running for re-election. the candidates for that seat are republican doug fisher, a -- deb fisher, a republican, and gob khary. our coverage of their monday night debate is courtesy of n.i.t. news. >> we are live tweeting this debate. if you're on twitter, follow the hashtag nesen. for the next hour the candidates will face questions from nebraska journalists, from citizens across the state who participated in our news voter voices project, and also questions from each other. the rules are fairly simple. each candidate will have 90 seconds to respond to the question and then 30 seconds for a rebuttal. tonight's debate is taking place before a live studio audience. we have asked the audience to refrain from applauding or cheering as it will only take time away from the candidates. before we meet the candidates, let's meet the panel of journalist. we begin with fred knapp, a urge:ist for 30 years, the last 11 of those with n.e.t. news coverage the state sledge slache and politics. and pauline, a journalist for 20 years. you aged me a bit. >> she has spent 10 of thos

"at the end of the day i take off my clothing and go to bed.' could you buy these people a thesaurus? guest: i happened to hate that phrase. i would support a law to banish it from the airwaves. newt gingrich always says "frankly this" and "frankly that." guest: you can't point. guest: it is inside-the-beltway speak. you are thinking about what you're going to say. "i have this point i have to hit." guest: "let me be clear."

behind that and speak about it confidently. host: good morning, doug. caller: romney seems more enthusiastic about bombing iran under the behest of the israelis. it is a war crime to do that without a united nations security council chapter 7 resolution, and george bush was recently advised not to travel to switzerland because of the laws of universal jurisdiction. i would like to see this question asked at the debate. guest: it would be an interesting question to hear the responses. i would point out that it is not always a violation of international law to invade or attack a country without a chapter 7 resolution. there is the universal right of self-defense. i would remind the caller that if one country invaded at wor -- it's another, that may be illegal, but the country fighting back is not in violation of anything. host: matthew lee, you recently wrote a piece about how the countries are eager to show close ties with israel. do you expect this to be a big topic on monday night? guest: i think that mitt romney will try to expand on this idea that he brought up in the clip yo
right over on this side. >> my name is doug. both of you are expert election watchers of the highest caliber so i was wondering if you can talk about super pacs and the new world of campaign finance. >> i can't wait for the real auts city when all is said and done about this. but as i said a little bit earlier the amount of money that's being spent especially on the republican side has been astro nomcal and the only reason why mitt romney isn't getting outspent by a great margin. at the same time, flooding money into the stms as an outside group is not always particularly helpful. first of all, no matter how smart these groups are -- and believe me, they're a heck of a lot smarter than the outside groups that used to be. they had a cause and they were going to spend a jlion dollars even if it was on some crazy thing. we need more jello-o in schools. that's what we're going to care about. now it's they are strategic, they have their own polling, they have their own media shops. they think they know, ok, here's how we need to move voters to our candidate. this is how we have to help mi

the serbs said wait a minute, are your meetings constantly infiltrated by mubarak's doug's? are they on the street corner right before you get there? the egyptian said yes, yes. that's because you run your movement like the democratic uprising. it's actually a nonviolent guerrilla movement. he said military. to succeed in predator regime come you have to approach it almost like a military operation, just about guns. i should say the bred away, right there in the name has to be nonviolent. it's not because they're pacifists. this is a numbers game here between 1,902,005, does uprisings that were violent, 60 to 25% of the time, nonviolent uprising, 60 to make 75% of the time. >> you have what could be seen as the misfortune or great fortune of having your book come out when the story you're writing about was very much in a fluid situation unfolding at the time. it's a good situation for the book because it brought attention. on the other hand come a step to keep track of a moving target. a lot has been happening since you finish the book. you wrote in the book today, egypt
